Lord Charlemont had a row with a painter Ffolliott from Aungier Street apparently over the painting to Marino House properly and in 1792 Ffolliott took his revenge building a Spite Wall a curved row of 26 houses now known as Marino Crescent which were built to obscure the view of Dublin Bay from Marino House.

The Crescent is unique in Ireland in terms of its scale and is a Georgian feature more readily associated with the city of Bath in England

Bram Stoker author of Dracula was born in number 15

Unfortunately in the 1980 s the eastern most house of the Crescent was demolished an apartment building constructed in its place The remaining houses are now Protected Structures however the architectural integrity beauty of the Crescent has been hugely compromised.
